Oh boy...

It's been so long since I posted... not because I have nothing to tell you about, but rather because I have so much to tell you about that I don't know where to start... and then I get distracted reading all the other blogs I love to read and before I know it time has got away!
Yesterday my mum and daughter (2) went to Melbourne city to visit Morris & Sons knitting shop! Oh, it was so tasty you wouldn't believe... all those lovely fibres in a beautiful open shop filled with light and tempting samples everywhere!!! Fortunately they had a toy corner and grandma and DD2 played in there for a while before riding up and down the escalators!

Outside I found this very appropriate sign! I guess this means I will certainly die warm! I guess that's a good thing?!!!

Mum and I had both seen a pattern for a Mimku Shawl quite independently of each other! The free pattern was in Better Homes & Gardens a little while back... hence my "accidental" purchase of 3 balls of Noro in the most delightful deep blue/aqua/purple tones. Mum's is tones of rich red! Knitted on 15mm needles it is a very quick knit and almost done since yesterday! This photo was taken last night and I'm a ball ahead since then!

Also bought a hank of 8 ply, 10ply, Noro sock yarn... you'll have to wait until daylight when I can photograph them in better colour! All in all a very enjoyable day!

Hello, I saw the Mimku shawl at a yarn store and I would very much like to know the pattern. I know it was free in Better Homes and Gardens in 2011 but the store was charging $6 for it. It looked simple to make... would you be so kind as to pass it on please?
